To enable plausibly deniable encryption on mobile devices, we introduce Mobiflage that hides encrypted volumes within random data on the device’s external storage. By providing a decoy key, users can plausibly deny the existence of any hidden data. Our Android prototype includes countermeasures for known weaknesses in desktop PDE systems, and highlights challenges of implementing PDE schemes on mobile systems.
